on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe
in ohio, senator brown and josh mandel, and i asked senator brown point blank could he support raising the eligibility age on social security medicare and he said no. that's just not going to happen. this was a guy who just won in a swing state. how many senate democrats are in that position? we know where the president is willing to go here and it's a lot further. >> no doubt about it and some of this, as brad mentioned earlier was discussed during the debt limit negotiations last year. how many senators would be with senator brown? probably ten. the rest would have to be kicking and screaming. i think everyone understands that some of these issues have to be addressed as part of a larger agreement. you mentioned speaker boehner, the other thing to watch out for is the fact senator mcconnell, normally a kaubs, very cautious politician by nature will look over his shoulder to make sure he doesn't face a tea party challenge. all of that together, i think, makes it a toxic atmosphere and something we will have to all watch carefully. >> now you -- do you believe that the president is giv
incentive for students to brown bag their lunches. new york city's mayor michael bloomberg hiking school lunch fees to help close the city's $2.5 billion budget gap. the move only applies to families who pay the full price for lunches about 25 percent of the students in new york. the cost going up from one buck to a dollar -- or one buck from a dollar 50 to 2.50. nascar beats wwe? clint voyeur and jeff gordon's scrap at the end of the race causing an all out brawl at the sprint cup series in phoenix, arizona. a fight started with one of the men on the pit crew grabbed gordon from behind and both side jumped in and got into it. even the drivers did, too. nascar officials looking further into that incident they are determining if there is any kind of punishment. tension built up with bowyer and he got fed up. >>> they gathered at the air force base in tampa, florida get a warm welcome to the 927 air refuelling wing. >>> it is tough being away from family p and friends beautiful girls and beautiful wife. >> every day we are counting down. first see that plane coming in taxiing in the feelin
over after the sudden firing of mike brown after just five games. tiki barber is the author of "tiki: my life in the game and beyond." nice to have you. let's start with that. everyone's talking phil jackson. i saw a little wire that said new coach and i was like oh, phil jackson. >> phil jackson retired for a reason a few years ago for the los angeles lakers. he's 70 years old. he's burnt out. he probably doesn't want to be on the bench any longer dealing with a lot of personalities that they have in los angeles, obviously kobe bryant. >> what? kobe bryant has a big ego? >> personality. >> sorry, that was my editorializing. >> exactly. i think mike d'antoni is the right coach for the los angeles lakers right now. he's looking to get back in to a high profile position. the lakers are going to give him that opportunity after being unceremoniously dismissed by the knicks last year. also, because of, let's call it high personality. i think it's a good place for him to restart and it will be good for the los angeles lakers because they need somebody who is going to come in and put in an
. scott brown did the same thing by the way. can i give a brief hurrah for my senator. that's senator professor warren. >> stephanie: what do you mean by that, willard thought he was a talk show host. >> caller: he started believing all these crazy people. i would point out that if he and scott brown both made the same mistake, the only common factor is eric fernstr oh om. you said romney was a dumber politician than dan quayle and sarah palin combined. >> caller: it's true. if all the stories are true of how stunned he was. i didn't think he was stupid. how does anybody interpret the polls as at least close, there is a possibility that you might loss. >> stephanie: whether you want to talk about blame the storm or chris christie, the president was ahead in all the battleground before that. >> caller: and forever. even after the first debate de debackel, which was allegedly the game changer. >> stephanie: you say how can democrats may republicans pay aside from dissociating myself from the comments. i mean, it's basically how they should deal with this fiscal cliff thing to start with
races, a democrat elizabeth warren beating republican incumbent senator scott brown. and in indiana, the democratic congressman, jim donnelly, defeating richard. in missouri democratic incumbent successfully fought off a challenge by congressman taught a kid who was not able to recover from comments about women's bodies and pregnancies of an absurd nature. well, in virginia democrat tim kane defeated former fellow governor george allen in thh most expensive senate race in the country. more than $82 million spent on the race. in the house republicans retain their majority with at least 2303 seats. the democrats' 192. ten races have yet to be called. the republicans 233 seats is more than that to one aid needed to control the lower chamber. fewer than the 241, at least at this point, that they hold in the current congress. the most important election of our lifetime, it's over. what happens next? we will lay out the consequences in tonight's chalk talk. wall street reacting to a second obama term. a triple digit tumble, uncertainty about the presidency is removed, but uncertainty abou
kerry you would have to replace him and maybe scott brown runs for his seat but i think john kerry or berman would be solid picks. >>shepard: on the federal reserve we hear about lawrence summers. >>guest: former clinton secretary was interested in it before better -- bernanke was tapped. and the vice chair of the central bank now, she would be the first woman to head the bank so she is probably the favorite in this game we all have to play. >>shepard: with the focus on women in the elections that would make sense on a bunch of different fronts. and the defense department with panetta saying that's it. >>guest: well, he will stay for a little bit and deal with this sequestration problem, until it is solved and you have to look at panetta's deputy and you have to look at the highest ranking member at the defense department who would be the first female defense secretary. >>shepard: at treasury, geithner has been a controversial figure. what is the thinking on that? >>guest: you have jack lew now the white house chief of staff, widely respected and knows policy inside and out and an
last thing. scott brown is replaced by elizabeth warren. olympia snowe replaced by an independent. herb cole replaced by tammy baldwin. the pattern in all of those is that it's a more conservative person in the senate replaced by a less conservative person in the senate. maybe fine lines, but that's the pattern in all of them. is one of the kons chemical weapons that democrats might reform the filibuster? >> i hope so. two ideas i'd throw out there. to get rid of it on the motion to proceed. that would reduce everything in half the time we spend on bills. the second, require these people to stand and speak. make them stand and speak. you could have a filibuster clock on your show. it would be mesmerizing. not really actually. people would hate it. they would hate that two people would hold up one judge in illinois. that's what we're seeing. if those senators are held accountable by making them actually stand and filibuster, it would make a difference. the american people will see it. there could be other reforms as well. i put those out there as doable and something that could make a hu

are working, we are working to make sure we have the votes to do that. >> senator brown of massachusetts lamented that -- [inaudible] >> i am glad to have the chance to respond to that. i saw during the campaign his plea for bipartisanship -- that is a big joke. it is a travesty. he was one of the most partisan people to ever serve here. he could have saved citizens united. he could have been the 60th vote on that and many things. i do not need a lecture from him on bipartisanship. he should go look in the mirror. [inaudible] >> you should never chew gum -- get rid of that. [laughter] i wanted to tell you earlier but did not have the chance. john kerry is my friend. i worked so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help them. he came very close. there has been no better legislator that i served with. he has been way out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development, many other things. i do not know any conversation with the president or anyone in the white house has had with him. any conversation i have had with john k
under then-governor brown who was known partially for this in the doons bury as governor moon beam. but he got it passed, so every new building in california had to meet energy efficiency standards. it's made california very efficient. these are the kinds of things, and as i said, portman and shaheen have been working on a compromise on this. these are the kinds of things we can do to make ourselves energy independent. my view, look, katrina -- sorry, sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or the ore. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry, we have had three or four hundred-year disasters -- sorry, i'm phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four year, we have had once in 100-year disasters. with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on, and that would be on the agenda. and
